Rivers - The immediate past governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, has said that no anti-corruption agency in the country can probe him, Punch reports.
Tony Okocha, a former aide to Amaechi, said that the ex-governor was not afraid of the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission or the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as long as the probe was not a witch-hunt.

Amaechi along with some other former governors: Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano); Sullivan Chime (Enugu); Babatunde Fashola (Lagos); Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom); Sule Lamido (Jigawa); Shehu Shema (Katsina) and Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State were being investigated by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission.
It was learnt that top operatives of the commission working in the task force had been dispatched to the states to carry out the probe of the affected former governors.
The probe is coming on the heels of a recent move by the ICPC to move 47 crack detectives to the states and the zones to strengthen them in the fight against graft in the society.
